One of the great things about being a “real” fan is that I enjoy going to games even when there is no possibility that the team will make the playoffs. Late in the season that was the case with the Orioles, and someone who felt otherwise offered great tickets that gave us a chance to get into the ballpark and enjoy a game.
Part of going to an Orioles game is getting the food and Boog’s Barbecue is an obvious choice for me. If you love the Orioles then you love Boog Powell, one of the top 100 home run hitters in Baseball. At times he can be seen sitting beside his Barbecue stand and getting a picture with him is just a request away. A class guy in an era when we wish more were like him.
I decided that I would like this picture of myself with the slugger as a VanDyke print.
